Penstemons and Other Sun Lovers - Julie Ritchie
Julie specialises in perennials and alpines, and grows peat free. She will be telling us about plants that can make a huge contribution to the colours in our gardens.
The Henleaze Garden Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the Main Hall, St Monica's, Cote Lane, Westbury-on-Trym. Meetings start at 7:30pm and members can enter the Hall from 7:00pm. Car parking is available on site. Meetings feature expert speakers, who sometimes bring plants for sale. In December, there is a Christmas Event and in the summer, the July and August meetings are replaced by garden visits.
The Club publishes a Newsletter giving news and details of events. There is an annual membership fee of £20 and members pay £1 per meeting attended. Non-members are admitted for a fee of £5.00. If you are interested in joining, click on Membership.
Our September Speaker - Julie Ritchie 'Penstemons and other Sun Lovers'
Julie trained as a landscape architect and went on to design gardens. She started her Hoo House Nursery, Tewksbury, in 1986 and specialises in perennials and alpines, and grows peat free. Hoo House is well worth a visit (less than an hour from Bristol) as it has an extensive range of plants on offer and lots of advice is available.
Julie will be speaking to us as autumn is imminent, i.e. the time when it is good to plant perennials. She will be bringing an extensive range of plants for sale at our meeting, and so this will be a good opportunity for members to get ideas for enhancing their range of plants.
Summer Garden Parties
Our Summer Garden Parties will be held on:
Wednesday, 6th July, Thursday 21st July and Sunday 14 August
Members who would like to come a Party should contact Susan Slatter at email@example.com
